Thanks Chetna. Sorted.
I just updated Lightroom 6.4 to 6.5 and got error messages. I'M not able to start LR 6.5 although I made these the folders readable and writable.
By the way . . . why should I decrease the security my OS for an software that had worked in former versions?
I am having same issue. All these folders for my user are read & write. Problem not fixed.

After looking through all the links (second thread most useful) Chetna provided above I have resolved the issue. The key was to use the 'action pop-up button' and selecting 'apply to all enclosed items'. I hope this is not an issue with future updates.
I would like to echo other user questions that by making these changes are we opening ourselves and computer up to any threats???
Good to know that it is sorted for you.
It is not opening your system to any threats as giving permissions is fixing damaged user accounts. We are working on it.

That worked for me as well. But this should be unnecessary. An update to any software should not require this level of manual overrides to make it work.
I got the same issue with Lightroom when I tried to set up Imagenomic Portraiture. I followed your instructions and have applied permissions to all items in Adobe folder but unfortunately it doesn't work. I got the same message "Lightroom encountered user permission issues". When I push "Repair to Continue" it does not shows any repairs and I just have two options like "Learn more" (what I have learned already) and "Quit". I reloaded Lightroom sacrificing all of my work of 3 days, but it also didn't work. Please fix it ASAP. Thank you.
Thanks to Andrew! You provided the clue I needed to get Lightroom to open again. But, good grief, Adobe--why did you screw that up so badly? I've been using Lightroom since it was first released and never had such a serious issue with an upgrade. Get yourselves straightened out or I'll no longer be able to tell fellow photographers that Lightroom is the program they should use.
I tried the going to 4 folders on the mac and adjusting the permission. That didn't work. Then I tried the adding the scrip to spotlight. That worked.
